I think if there was a heaven for house lovers, this might be it.

Mickey Muennig is famous for his unorthodox, tree-house and half-buried organic designs and his hippie sensibilities. He is known locally around Big Sur as “the white elf”.

His handiwork dots the landscape along the Big Sur coast and this particular home was built to blend in with the rugged coastal forest.

Listed for a cool $2,500,000, this home has 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 1900 square feet of awe…

The house comes on 5 acres so you would basically own the views here.

Despite being a naturalist who found inspiration in nature’s intricate beauty, Muennig is also somewhat of a minimalist, living by the motto: “I don’t believe in building more than it takes to live”.

This translates into not much attention to furniture. Muennig was known to tell his clients that they didn’t need any chairs – they could just throw cushions on the stairs.

The little furniture there is in this house is indeed included in the sale.

This sod-roof beauty has been for sale since February 2012 and has already seen a half-million dollar price drop.

According to the listing: “The seller wants to see offers now!”
